XP Antivirus Pro 2010. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as XPAntivirusPro 2010, XPAntivirusPro2010 | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12
XP Antivirus Pro 2010 (also can be met as XP Antivirus Pro) is a rogue anti-spyware application. It uses false scan results and fake security warnings in order to scare you into purchasing this bogus software. It states that your computer is infected with Trojans, adware or malware and that you should purchase XP Antivirus Pro 2010 to remove the infections that of course don't even exist. This parasite is advertised through the use of Trojans. It's also promoted on various malicious websites. Once active, this parasite will ostensibly scan your computer and list various fake infections or security threats. It will also flood your computer with very annoying pop-ups and security alerts. One of such fake security alerts states:


XP Antivirus Pro 2010 Firewall Alert!
XP Antivirus Pro 2010 has blocked a program from accessing the Internet
Internet Explorer is infected with Trojan-BNK.Win32-Keylogger.gen
Private data can be stolen by third parties, including credit card details and passwords.


While running, XPAntivirusPro2010 loads fake system scanners. It displays exaggerated or false scan results with tons of worms, Trojans and other mawlare. As a solution for fixing everything and deleting all the infections, XP Antivirus Pro 2010 will ask you to pay for a "full" version of the program. However, wasting your money in such a way is not recommended! There's also another very annoying thing about this infection. It blocks legitimate anti-spyware and anti-virus software. Actually it blocks all executable files, so very likely you won't be able to launch even a notepad. Last, but not least, XPAntivirusPro 2010 will hijack Internet Explorer. It will display bogus websites and redirect you to the pay page of the rogue program. The removal guide written below will show you how to disable its restrictions and how to remove the rogue program for your PC.

This does not work unless your prepared to buy the software. Another ploy to sell a software. It will scan for free but not fix it until you buy it. Wht falsly advertise that it will remove. It will block, that's it.

I ran steps 1,2,3,4,and 5. But then I installed ESET, Now the Start menu is disabled, and I get some funky 'safe mode' type list asking me what program I want to run. Cannot get into System Restore.
